MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Nosh on a mile-high sandwich or chocolate malt at Eleven City Diner, a modern revival of the classic Jewish deli. Gleaming subway tiles play off retro leather booths and swiveling barstools, while jazz in the background keeps things moving with chutzpah and finesse. Diner standards include patty melts, sandwiches piled with corned beef or pastrami, knishes and latkes. Bubbe's chicken soup comes brimming with a fluffy matzo ball the size of a baseball; while Junior's cheesecake from Brooklyn or a triple-decker wedge of red velvet cake sates all the sweet-loving guests. A full-service deli counter offers salamis and smoked fish to-go. For a true blast from the past, stop by the candy stand near the entry, stocked with Bazooka Joe and other favorites.
